Today, Desalegn is a financier. In any case, when he was a Qeerroo: a youthful, enthusiastic and unmarried man from Ethiopia's biggest ethnic gathering, the Oromo, bound by what he calls an "obligation to shield the general population".
Twelve years back he sorted out mass challenges against a race result he and numerous others trusted the decision Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) had fixed. This landed him in jail, alongside a great many others, on fear-based oppression charges.
From that point forward he has hitched and, in the same way as other of his ages in Ethiopia, generally evaded governmental issues. That was until 12 February, when he joined nearly everybody in the town of Adama, and in numerous others urban areas over the district of Oromia, in a strike requiring the arrival of restriction pioneers and a conclusion to tyranny.
The blacklist, which kept going three days and conveyed quite a bit of focal Ethiopia to a stop, finished on 13 February with the arrival of Bekele Gerba, a conspicuous Oromo government official who lives in Adama, and, inside 48 hours, the sudden abdication of Ethiopia's ambushed head administrator, Hailemariam Desalegn. The shaken government at that point pronounced an across the country highly sensitive situation on 15 February, the second in the same number of years.
